Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My project is a birthday card using the Lovely Lily Pad stamp set (level 1 SAB gift), Lily Pad Dies (level 2 SAB gift) and the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper (level 1 SAB gift). <— Did you catch all that? Three FREE items! A stamp set, dies AND DSP – all for FREE! I just love FREE stuff! All this FREE stuff coordinates to make a BEAUTIFUL fancy fold birthday card. I don’t know the name of this fold – the card base uses a dutch fold but then there is an inner card, too. I had saved a photo of a card folded like this a while back – it’s not watermarked and I can’t find it again – go figure, right!?!
I had no instructions, so I had to kind of “wing it”. The Coastal Cabana dutch fold card base was easy – That’s 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 2-1/8″ from each side and then folded to meet in the middle in the front. Next I cut the DSP to 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″ and die cut a circle from the center, cut it in half down the center and attached each half to the sides in the front. I repeated that process and adhered to the inside of the card front – so both sides of the “flaps” are covered. Then I took a slightly smaller circle and cut out the 1/2 circle from each end of the card base – so now I had my hole from outside to inside of card.
The inside of the card has a smaller card. This Bermuda Bay card base is 5″ x 7-1/2″, scored at 3-3/4″. This card is layered in DSP 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″. Don’t you just LOVE that DSP – flowers on one side and then semi plain on the back. I made a banner of a 2″ strip of Blushing Bride and a 1-1/2″ strip of DSP. I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White (from the Peaceful Moments stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink. This was then punched out using the 2″ circle punch and backed with a piece of Coastal Cabana CS punched out with the 2-1/4″ circle punch. These were attached to the card so that it was centered in the hole cut in the front.
I stamped a few lilies and a few leaves, die cut them using the Lily Dies and colored them with Stampin’ Blends and tucked them in under the circles. A few additional die cuts from the Lily Dies are attached inside the flaps. Inside the second card is a 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ layer of Whisper White that was stamped with a sentiment (also from the Peaceful Moments stamp set) in Bermuda Bay ink and a 1/2″ strip of DSP was adhered across the bottom of this layer.
To finish off the card, I wrapped a ribbon around the closed card (adhered it with a few glue dots) and tied a bow in the front. I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I hope you are, too. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
